The title of the new series by Ian Kaler is a reference to the acronym “ohne Titel” [“untitled”], but it also leaves open the question of what else this abbreviation might stand for. The piece, created in collaboration with AQUARIAN JUGS (the new alias of Jam Rostron aka Planningtorock), the percussionist Houeida Hedfi, the set designer Stephanie Rauch, the lighting designer Jan Maertens and the dramaturge Heike Albrecht, examines states of semi-consciousness, negotiated on one's own body, understood as the possibility of charging it by or with energy. It's about the state of drifting, of letting go.
In this (non) solo, bodies and movement figures interfere synaesthetically with each other and the music. One figure gives rise to the next without negating the one before it, they alienate themselves in order to come closer. In order to ask these questions through dance: How much formality does sensuality on stage require? How big or small can a movement be in order to evoke the next, in order to address, update, open, another "I"?
